The treatment Amber Rose received at the hospital was impeccable once she was seen. They called St Thomas who came with all their equipment to pick Amber Rose up and take her to their PICU unit where she stayed for six days, until she took her last breaths. It took St Thomas a long time to stabilise Amber Rose for her transfer and when they did we got in the ambulance and she remained calm all the way to the hospital.
It took days for them to stabilise Amber Rose. Every day we got worse news than the day before. Amber Rose was on so many drips that she even had one in her head. She swelled up so much that she was unrecognisable. It was so sad watching her every day. We hardly ate and most days were filled with tears, total despair, deep pain and heartache.
Eventually they managed to stabilise Amber Rose and she was breathing on her own; her blood gas was good but the head consultant sat us down and told us her brain would be devastated from the bacteria. We asked for an MRI scan, which they did, and the results were as devastating as the consultant had said. Her cortex was like a piece of lace; her brain had so many holes caused by not enough oxygen due to the blood poisoning.
